Description: The American Bulldog is bred from working dogs and designed for catching livestock and protecting property. They are larger then their close relatives, the Old English Bulldog. American Bulldogs are a powerful, athletic short-coated dog, strongly muscled and well boned. The head is large and broad with a wide muzzle, and with very powerful jaws. American Bulldogs generate the impression of great strength, endurance and exhibit a well-knit, sturdy compact frame. The American Bulldog should be evaluated as a working dog, and exaggerations or faults should be penalized in proportion to how much they interfere with the dog's ability to work.

Country of Origin: United States of America
History: Bulldogs in England were originally working dogs who drove and caught cattle and guarded their masters' property. The breed's strength, courage, and familiarity with livestock led to its popularity in the brutal sport of bull baiting. When this sport was outlawed in England, the original type of Bulldog disappeared from Britain and was replaced with the shorter, stockier, less athletic dog we now know as the English Bulldog. The original Bulldog, however, was preserved by working class immigrants who brought their working dogs with them to the American South. Small farmers and ranchers used this all-around working dog for many tasks. By the end of World War II, however, the breed was almost extinct. Mr. John D. Johnson, a returning war veteran, decided to resurrect this breed. Along with Alan Scott and several other breeders, Johnson began carefully to breed American Bulldogs, keeping careful records and always with an eye for maintaining the breed's health and working abilities. Today the breed is highly popular in America.
